Some Helpful Tips...

• Send the completed application packet by the deadline, April 30. Incomplete or late packets will be rejected.
• Proofread, proofread, and proofread! The scholarship committee considers spelling and grammar when reviewing applications.
• Write a thank you letter if you receive an award. Other than being the right thing to do, if you are planning to apply for another scholarship in the future, a thank you letter for past scholarships impresses the scholarship committee.
• Get involved with LPA! We are a volunteer organization and any student who has shown a willingness to volunteer his or her time will look good to the scholarship committee. Ask your local chapter or district officer how you can be of service. Indicate how you plan to help on your personal statement.
• If you need help, do not be afraid to ask! A high school counselor, college advisor, your parents, or even another college student may all be of service. Also, feel free to email me with any questions.

LPA Folks,

I wanted to distribute our second annual Chris Cassella Scholarship application.  You may share the attachment with the LPA members in your
area and encourage them to apply between now and May 1st.  We're offering one scholarship of $500 and are hoping to raise more money
between now and June to hopefully be able to give out two scholarships.  Last year's recipient was Jake Vanderloo, he wrote a terrific essay.  If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you!--

Sincerely,Clinton Brown III
